Stylist • DevaCurl Specialist

Latanya Johnson

Forget the triangle cut or mullet, a head full of curls can be sexy and professional. Over the years, Latanya has tried to spread her love of curls through her work as a curl specialist. Growing up as a biracial curly girl in the Portland and Vancouver area, Latanya’s hair was often uncombed and unloved. She grew up thinking that her hair needed to be straightened for manageability and that big curly hair was “hard” and “unkempt.” It wasn’t until her early twenties that she decided to transition to her natural texture and learn to work with it.

With that decision came a host of struggles that took her years to solve, like what products should she use and who  She became obsessed with curly hair and made it her mission to save as many curly girls from similar struggles and teach them to care for and love their unique texture.

Latanya is also a professional makeup artist, doing anything that involves makeup, from weddings to photoshoots. She is also a cosmetic chemistry student with the goal of not only giving you a beautiful makeup look or a curly cut, but to formulate the perfect products to complement her work as a stylist.
